]]>5 Reasons to Purchase a Home Now!, 21 Feb 2017 00:00:00 -0500

1. Interest Rates Are Projected To Rise

The U.S. Federal Reserve raised the interest rate it charges banks. The Mortgage Banks Association projects that 30-year mortgage interest rates will rise above 5 percent this year.

2. Home Prices are Rising

Average home prices are increasing about 4.5 percent nationally, a trend that is expected to continue for several years.

3. Competition Is Increasing

Many people put off buying a home during the Recession, but that pent-up demand is now entering the market and will compete for your dream house.

4. Owning a Home Create Family Wealth

In recent studies, the Federal Reserve found that the average homeowner’s net worth is 30 times greater than a renter.

5. Buy Low, Sell High

Home ownership can create family wealth if you follow good investment principles: Buy at the lowest price possible, and hold on to your investment until you can sell it at a higher price. Today’s real estate is selling “low” compared to where it will be in coming years – It's time to buy!

We offer a variety of mortgage products and services, including programs for first time home buyers:

  • Fixed and Adjustable Rate Mortgages
